What I love most about Pelion High is the community. Everyone there is very close knitted and bound together through the atmosphere and culture. However, there are a few teachers who need some reevaluating in terms of personal opinions in the teaching subject. Regarding government classes, some particular teachers stressed their opinions, and often taught it as fact. This was very frustrating, and after talking and stressing to administration, really nothing was done and it continued to grow, and is still there today. Without that, the community and people are great.

The last 4 years at Pelion High School have been a roller coaster ride. I have found who I am through this school. The teachers and staff have helped me figure out exactly where I want to go in life and how I want to do it. I have made some amazing friends and some marvelous memories with the Marching Pride. I have also learned life lessons that I know I would not have been able to figure out on my own. I am proud to call myself a Pelion Panther. Very soon to become a Panther Alumni. With Pride!
I went to Pelion for 2.5 years. They are a good school. Most of the teachers really care for the students. They have awesome career options, as I graduated with my CNA. The guidance office could definitely use some work!
